Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette

I’m a big fan of food and a huge fan of eyeshadow palettes which made the launch of the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette one of the most exciting things that’s come about for me! I picked up this $36 bundle of joy from the Too Faced website and received it in a very fanciful and confetti filled box with a free mini lipstick sample. I’m a total packaging snob and they did not disappoint! Now let’s find out if the actual product lived up to the visual hype!

The 9 delightfully named shades are housed in Too Faced’s traditional tin magnetic packaging with a pretty spacious mirror for the size of the palette. There are 3 true mattes, 5 shimmers, and one matte shade that has baby speckles of gold (hello, Spread the Love). As with most palettes, the ones that carry the strongest head-on pigmentation are the shimmer shades, though almost all really bring a punch when it comes to real life application. The shimmery shades have a soft and creamy feel to them without being overly soft, powdery, or breakable, while the mattes are a lot more firm, which allows for great control over buildability.

The only shade that was disappointing was the bone white shade, Extra Creamy. I usually don’t judge mattes or whites because they tend to be the most difficult shades for palettes to squeeze the greatness out of, but I have multiple palettes – both drugstore and high end – that have way more pigmented similar shades. I am also slightly confused about the set-up of this palette as Extra Creamy is one of the largest shades in the palette. In fact, the only shade with the large pan slot that I fully understand is Bananas which is a versatile and pigmented shade (and also makes a bomb highlight on deeper skin).

Other than that minor setback, I am a huge fan of this palette. It smells lovely, like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and is peanut free which cuts down on a lot of risks of the palette taking anyone on an unexpected ER adventure. I also think the overall color selection is smart for those with a fondness for warm tones who want the opportunity to make easy everyday looks or more bright and dramatic ones!

Thanks for reading!

Until next time, have an awesome rest of your day and an amazing rest of your week!
